Planned Giving Program�…leaving a Heritage Legacy
The Regina Plains Museum is pleased to provide an opportunity for residents, members and heritage supporters to leave a lasting legacy to their community.

The museums� Planned Giving Program may be a realistic way for you to contribute to preserving the heritage of Regina. You incur no expenses by including a gift to the Regina Plains Museum in your will, and there can be a tax advantage in doing so.

If properly set up, a planned gift will maximize your tax and estate planning benefits. The flexibility of planned giving makes it possible for you to contribute to the Museum in a manner that best suits your particular financial situation.

A gift may consist of a one-time donation, a series of donations over a set period of time or ongoing financial support. It may be a �present gift� which can be used immediately, or a “deferred gift” which will be made available in the future, perhaps after your death.

As with any long-term tax, financial or estate planning, planned gifts should be arranged with the help of a professional financial advisor.

Your gift to the Regina Plains Museum will help to ensure that the heritage of the plains region is safeguarded for future generations.

Current planned giving options include:

Cash and Gifts in Kind
The Museum will be pleased to accept gifts of cash or gifts in kind (eg: stocks, real estate) at any time. To qualify for tax benefits, gifts must meet the Revenue Canada definition of a �voluntary transfer of property without valuable consideration�.

Life Insurance Life insurance is an excellent way of ensuring continuing support for the museum and it also provides significant income tax relief during your lifetime.

Instead of making one large donation, regular monthly or annual gifts can be made to the museum, in the form of life insurance premiums. The Regina Plains Museum will ultimately benefit by receiving the amount insured.

Charitable Bequests

Making a charitable bequest to the museum in your will incurs no out-of-pocket expenses. Tax credits associated with a charitable bequest can save your estate a considerable amount of tax, particularly if you have holdings of capital property.

All Donors to the Regina Plains Museum will be remembered and recognized in association with the Glass Wheatfield – A Salute to Canadian Farmers, a beautiful artistic installation which is so reminiscent of the plains region.

Donors will be recognized on a special Donor Wall next to the Glass Wheatfield in the museum gallery.

In addition to having your family name remembered in perpetuity, you will also gain: access to tax advantages which may benefit you or your heirs. Formal recognition now for a gift to be made in the future. an opportunity to establish a personal heritage legacy, enriching the lives of future generations
